great day for them. he has been a workhorse. those arms rumored to be a candidate to be traded as you get closer to the trade deadline. talked earlier about how ricky nolasco was one of those arms. >> jon: sanchez leads off, on base twice. fast ball at 93 for called strike. originally signed by new york yankees in 2004. then traded to atlanta. in the dirt, breaking ball, 0-2.
went to atlanta in a deal with melky cabrera there for the 2010 season. >> mike: he has fast ball, 90s, breaking ball that's quick. just saw it. >> jon: skies one to right, sanchez, stanton, one away. sanchez one for three. plus a walk. miami got done when they traded dan uggla to atlanta for the 2011 season. base runners down by three. this was moving along nicely until all of a sudden two down in the sixth inning, runner aboard, tim lincecum, who only
allowed one hit since the second inning, only two hits in the game and he fell behind logan morrison who eventually hit a triple against him to knock in a run. next batter ozuna got a hit to knock in the tying run. hechavarria. nicely done. and arias, 0 for 4. he hasn't had 0 for 4 or 0 for anything the last couple weeks. had 16 hits and at least one every game for 11 straight games played coming into tonight. now perez comes up. up for the first time. andres torres started the game, did well against marlins starter ricky nolasco, he walked and had two doubles, but tried to turn that last double into a triple, injured his knee, making a head
first slide to third. actually got thrown out at third. great throw by ozuna. throw so strong, looked like juan perez made that throw. >> mike: it did. a cannon. >> jon: too high. a ball, one strike. perez in his tenth game, four outfield assists. watch what happens to his right knee. ouch. stanton, and a very easy inning for dunn. eight pitches, three up, three down. onto the ninth. 6-3, miami.
right now. >> jon: juan pierre. curve ball in there for a strike. 0-2, facing mijares, leading off the ninth. marlins have six runs on the board. >> mike: i know what movie he is going to redo. >> jon: which one. >> mike: "the birds." >> jon: the alfred hitchcock movie. >> mike: i think he will do a remake, inspired by the seagulls. great idea for a remake, call it the gulls. >> jon: strike two called. colin kaepernick threw out first pitch tonight. threw it hard, too, mike.
and then after -- >> hey, watch out for the giants, they're making a come back, all right? look for them in the 2013 all-star game as well, get on it! >> jon: you know what i wish he said after that? >> mike: what? >> jon: and now i'm going to disneyland. >> mike: i think the world is moving pretty fast for that young man now. >> jon: he's an excellent guest, isn't he? romo told him you throw harder than me i think. so they had some fun out there. no need so far for sergio tonight. the giants are trailing in this game, 6-3 in the ninth inning. ed lucas, the hitter.
cishek the closer for miami is getting ready in the visitor's bullpen for the last of the ninth. and the giants, whenever the marlins come to town, it is bad for the giants, whether they've got all their array of stars or they go with a bunch of young guys, whatever it is, it is just the uniform comes in, whoever wears that uniform beats the giants. >> mike: can't explain it. called baseball. >> jon: there's cishek getting ready in the pen. the bullpen coach, cornelius. >> mike: great to listen to visiting bullpen guys talk about the fans, how to receive them in this ballpark. >> jon: another fast ball, strikes out lucas. >> mike: visiting bullpen guys
get on the mound there in front of the fans in the sidelines, and the fans let them have it. pretty entertaining. you can see how close they are to folks in the stands there. great seats, you're standing right behind them. >> jon: stanton takes high for ball one. earlier this year when the giants were in chicago at wrigley field, we were asking hunter pence about the bleacher bums out there. and he spoke about how much fun they were. a base hit for stanton. his first hit of the game, was 0 for 3, got hit by a pitch, ended up being a big play in the eighth inning, two strike count, got a hit. then what proved to be a big
inning, three run rally that put them ahead was under way. here is logan morrison, who had a homer and triple tonight. couple of big hits. he was the big guy that kept the marlins in the game early against lincecum. 6-3, miami in the ninth inning. >> mike: so we're asking pence, well, is wrigley one of the rugged places. they're good here. he named a couple other ball parks. he said the most rugged park when i was a visiting player, at&t park. the ball goes through the legs of sanchez. stanton over to second. he says i say this with all due respect. they're creative and they're relentless. >> mike: see, i think creativity is the key. relentless, you can go before relentless.
you don't mind if the guy is entertaining. >> jon: that's a foul. you had to deal with the bleacher bums and you were a cub. >> mike: first time, i was so jacked up, my first day in the big leagues, guy said hey, what's your name. tried, walked back, hey 40, what's your name? scheduled to begin, go buy a program. walked back, same guy. clock work. hey, 40, what's your name. i said buy a program, meat. he said i did, you ain't in it! that's how my love affair began with the bleacher bums. but they were entertaining.
and in the bullpen there at wrigley field, you could hear them get on the left fielders. and it was comical. >> jon: ends up being a nice save by sanchez after the one that got right through him earlier. this one actually looked like a wild pitch in the making. he kept it from being there. >> mike: it was a big wild pitch. he blocked it. i think he didn't have good form, body in front of that fast ball. here, breaking ball, easier to block. ball in the dirt like that, keep that runner on base, you did your job. doesn't have to be pretty. >> jon: 2-2.
>> jon: last chance for the giants, down 6-3, we head to the last of the ninth inning from at&t park. the miami closer has come in, steve cishek. >> mike: you see the numbers, 32nd game he has come into. 3.56 e.r.a. high velocity side winder. 93, 94, he can do that. very good hard breaking slider. earlier in the year, left handers, came up with a change-up. eased the playing field for him. >> jon: ruggiano now in left field, justin ruggiano, part of a double switch. slotted in number six in the batting order, cishek in number one spot where pierre had been. 0-1 to nick noonan. noonan leads off, 0 for 3, run
batted in. brandon belt on deck, gregor blanco due third. three left handers in a row coming up. 1-1 the count. noon noonan, get on one way or another. fans are still here, trying to inspire the giants. right in under the hands, yanked foul. cishek, left handers hit better against him than right handers, doesn't mean they're hitting well, hitting .242 as a group against him. right-handed hitters only hitting .143 against cishek.
1-2 the count to rookie nick noonan. that slider too low. >> mike: that's right where cishek wanted to throw that pitch the last two counts. >> jon: 3-2. >> mike: i can guarantee that gets on by way of a walk or knock, it will be more life in that giants dugout. need to get some runners on. >> jon: lot of action going. up the middle. he gets on. base hit to center.
giants first hit since the sixth inning. >> mike: worked those pitches to get that count, the challenge wasn't a hanger either. cishek threw it right there at the knees. it was right at the base of the strike zone, which we have seen called a strike all night. right back up the middle with a strike. >> jon: brandon belt now. a pinch hitter. belt, .263, seven homers, 32 batted in. that's fouled. right field line. >> mike: breaking ball, flat in his hands. if you're a left-hander hitting off this guy, you look for hard stuff away. that fast ball will run away from a left handed hitter.
not what you want to try to pull. around the knees, little heavy in that neck of the woods. >> jon: belt faced cishek last night, he struck him out to end the game. 0-2. >> mike: that's the pitch you're talking about. big movement, running away for a lefty. >> jon: outfield straight away. that didn't last long for brandon belt. >> mike: stay away with two seat movement. get him to chase out of the strike zone. looked like it would be a strike
for the longest time. and it just faded away. >> jon: now blanco, who had two hits this game, his average for the year up to .290. padres beat the dodgers 5-2 in san diego. beat clayton kershaw. ball one. in that game clayton richards started and right away had to be taken out of the game, his arm was hurting. never got a man out in the first inning. the bullpen went nine and beat l.a. over the outside, coming back to catch the corner for a strike. padres stay hot. d-backs beat the reds. arizona over cincinnati.
one ball, two strikes. colorado lost at washington. 2-1, nationals, stephen strasburg got the win. giants trailing the marlins 6-3. one out, one on. last of the ninth. blanco asks for timeout, backs away. giants need two men on base to send a possible tying run to the plate. >> mike: that pitch there away, that center field side, hit the is center, ruggiano in left field, about six steps towards
the line. fast ball from cishek, you can understand why those guys are there. >> jon: blanco hanging tough. blanco had only two previous at bats against cishek, a single and struck out against him. buster posey in the hole. up the middle, base hit! and they have two men on. noonan to second and holding. and marco scutaro coming up. >> mike: now it gets interesting. so they have done their job,
extended the inning, get the heart of the order up. set the table. >> jon: you mentioned this earlier about blanco. he is very scutaro-like again. romo will head down to the bullpen to get ready for a possible tenth inning. scutaro has had one hit tonight. an rbi double in the third. the then third baseman lucas back in the fifth. that was a big play. tried to score in that inning later on. that one almost got away from brantly. so much movement. one ball, no strikes.
buster posey on deck. giants are trailing 6-3, two men on, one man out. over the outside. >> mike: first fast ball to marco scutaro, you have to look middle in. count 1-0, you have a chance to get that location. >> jon: bare handed pickup. got him at first. nice play by cishek. >> mike: nice play, your momentum goes towards first base line. he had to unwind to get to the ball. gets by him, it is a base hit. once you get set, that goes down under. bare hander.
gets to target. >> jon: buster posey, had a single last night in the ninth against cishek. but is hitless so far tonight. two down. did not get the low strike there. ball one. base hit to outfield could make one run. cishek allowed three homeruns this year in 31 innings. ball two. hunter pence is on deck.
he has not had success against cishek each time he faced him. 2-0 to buster posey. 3-0. doesn't seem all that interested going after buster posey. >> mike: posey with a 3-0. there's the tying run. >> jon: what would be the answer to that question in your mind? >> mike: absolutely. another pitch, another location, have at it. >> jon: 3-1.
cishek to posey, 3-1 the count. polanco and that is number nine in a row for the marlins over the giants. and this one really hurts. the giants once again had a lead, this one into the sixth inning, tied into the eighth inning. marlins beat them with a rally in the eighth second night in a row. >> mike: it is the bullpen giving up, the giants aren't used to losing ballgames that way. tremendous performance for tim lincecum, seven strong innings, where he gave up four hits, struck out eight. shame to waste that performance and not walk away with a win. >> jon: for more on the game, tune into comcast sportsnet. tune in tomorrow at 12:30 for game three. we will be back wednesday from l.a., lincecum and kershaw due
smashing the window, trying to get it open. >> the team was not able to break the window open and the van sank with the woman inside. a search was launched and it took several hours for crews to locate the van in the water. divers say there is zero visibility here. so crews are still here now trying to get the van out of the water. now the medical examiner is working to identify the victim and notify family. reporting live in san francisco. nbc bay area news. >> a tragic night on the bay. now to the south bay struggling to find an answer. san jose police have announce ad major crackdown against gang violence. it comes two days after a teenag%!x boy was killed in a gang-related shooting. in addition to portions of east san jose, these some of the neighborhoods in south san jose that police will be targeting. saturating these locations with officers and hopes of getting the problem under control. kimberly terry is in san jose with the details.

place. we know that shuffling twon't keep it safer. >> reporter: they need a viable solution and more officers, not more overtime. >> this is great but it is not sustainable without more officers to support it. >> reporter: san jose police say they will not reaction to the growing violence but they will continue to tweet their plan according to the resources they have. >> these officers are being deployed into neighborhoods where they're most needed. yes, we are incurring a lot of overtime doing this but that's what we have to do. >> that was kimberly reporting. the san jose police department homes to work on gang prevention by getting illegal gungs off the streets. >> we have some surveillance photos to show you of a bank robbery in morgan hill this morning. the man came into the city bank, jumped over the counter, held a gun to the bank teller's head, he got away with the cash. a second suspect was waiting outside in the stolen gray jeep grand cherokee. the two drove off and ditched

clou increase with areas of drizzle and now fog. hold off on the first round of rain right now until we head into monday. and here's the thing. on monday, it is so rare, so unusual to get this kind of rainfall. all it will take in san rafael is 100th of an inch to set a new rainfall record. with that said, of course our water year is ending. that officially happens on june 30th. so a very strange turn of events here in the weather forecast. we'll let you know how long all this wet weather lasts. it is not only monday in that seven-day forecast. i'll have that for you coming up. the fourth of july is less than two weeks away but there is already concern associated with the holiday because of illegal fireworks. south bay firefighters are now stepping one a number of additional rigs that are patrolling day and night. they say they've already seen evidence of the damage fireworks can do. they blame fireworks for a grass
